What I Ate Wednesday #14 and packages!

Hello everyone! It’s another WIAW, how exciting! Thanks to Jen for hosting this awesome linky party! Again, the theme for July includes food AND fitness! I am also going to include some stuff that finally came to my house via mail that I ordered. Because I get excited when I get packages and I like to write about it – you know this!

First off, came the package from LuckyVitamin. I have been waiting for this package anxiously because I ran out of protein powder a week ago (!) and I have been in (emotional) pain ever since. Finally, I am at peace. I usually use Jay Robb whey protein but decided to get a different whey this time as it is cheaper and seems to have the same nutritional stats. I got 1 lb of this Isopure Dutch Chocolate Protein for something like $15. I also got 12 oz of Jay Robb’s vanilla egg white protein. I go for proteins that have no added sugars and there sadly aren’t many on the market. I am happy with these two brands though. I’ve been using Jay Robb for a few years now and this is my first time trying out Isopure – so far so good, the flavor of this protein is super chocolatey. I’m almost not used to such a strong chocolate flavor when it comes to protein powders, but I like it!

I also bought xylitol and xanthan gum. Haha, I just realized both of those start with an X. And I laughed at it. Wow, I am a dork.

Then I got a package from Sur La Table with some new stuff for the kitchen! I won a $250 gift card from Foodie By Glam for participating in an Instagram #dailyfoodie contest so that’s pretty exciting. I’m letting my mom use it with me cause that’s a whole lotta money to spend on kitchen stuff! Unwrapping this paper took me like 5 minutes, there was SO many layers! It reminded me of those russian dolls. Literally, there must have been like 10 layers of wrapping on this thing, haha.

I got a small-ish baking pan that can be used for casseroles, a glove, doughnut tin, and a slicer.

Now, onto fitness: I have been following Curvalicious program and I am now halfway done with week 3. My arms feel stronger and my abs feel stronger and it’s awesome. I need to step it up with cardio though, I’ve been lagging in that department. I am planning on going swimming this weekend in my gym’s pool since the gym is usually pretty empty on the weekends. I am also planning to start jogging soon… soon… once I get my knee checked out this Friday.

Now onto food: Tuesday

Post-workout (butt day!) Breakfast: Mocha Banana Shake with the new chocolate protein powder. This shake was ultra chocolatey! So yummy! I also had a green tea afterwards which made me way too jittery. Caffeine doesn’t like me.

Lunch: I had the iChoice meal replacement shake and a Probar Halo S’mores bar.

After-internship Lunch: I am happy to announce I am trying not to resort to eating sweet foods! Yay! For after internship lunch/meal whatever you wanna call it, I made a mahi mahi burger with guacamole and Laughing Cow swiss cheese. It was so good and filling! I somehow landed myself in a nap zone afterwards haha. A good hour at that too!

Dinner: I made zucchini gratin. It was yummy and light, would be a perfect side dish but the portion was good enough for me to have as a main course.

Dessert: Arctic Zero orange dreamsicle protein ice cream bar. Delicious. <3

Oh yeah by the way, if you haven’t entered my GIVEAWAY for the Arctic Zero prize pack (8 pints + 8 bars) make sure you do so! 🙂 It’s worth it, trust me. Have a great Wednesday, everyone!

  1. Happy WIAW! I have the same doughnut tin, I have not had the time to play with it yet. 🙂

  2. Oh my gosh, I seriously act like a kid at Christmas when I get packages in the mail…even the ones I’VE purchased! Lol I’ve tried that Isopure before…it’s not bad, but I definitely can’t handle the chocolate flavor if it’s only mixed in water (I’m so not a chocolate person…and I know, I’m weird). How’s that flavor of the Halo? I just tried the rocky road one the other day and it was just meh…definitely underwhelming.

    Jealous of your nap.

    And I’m digging the look of that gratin…off to check out the recipe! 😉

    Happy WIAW love! <3

    • You have gotta be the only person I (sorta) know that dislikes chocolate! Well, second, my old friend didn’t like it either. YOU GUYS ARE CRAY! lol
      I don’t recommend the Halo bar, truthfully. It’s pretty disappointing.

  3. Congrats on the win! And when are Arctic Zero winners announced? 🙂

  4. It’s always so much fun to get packages in the mail. Good eats for the week 🙂

  5. Zucchini Gratin?! Sounds amazing! Thanks for sharing the link, I can’t wait to try it!

  6. OOh! I love Sur La Table!! What an awesome prize!! Congrats :). That sandwich looks divine!

  7. Ohh that Mahi Mahi burger sounds great – love fish!!

  8. Wow! You got a lot of packages! I LOVE LOVE LOVE getting mail! It makes me feel loved 😀

  9. That sandwich looks DELISH! I have yet to try ProBar’s “Halo” bar, but they look very very good. 🙂

    • Truthfully, don’t waste your money. If you’re gonna go for a Probar brand I recommend the Fruition bars. My current favorite bar is the Good Greens bar though, I wrote a review about them recently and they are OH so worth it.

  10. i’m looking for a new protein powder – i’ll definitely check these out!

  11. I went to buy some Artic Zero (can’t wait) and was sad to see that they had been recalled… At least in my area. Did you know that?
